    I've been using Original Flexs on my bass for about six months and really love the sound that they produce on my bass, but they're too high tension for me to comfortably play Bach(and other acrobatic solos) on. What are some good low tension strings that don't inhibit solo playing but blend with a section well?

    In order of Tension heaviest at the top:

    Original Flexocor
    Flexocor Stark
    Flexocor Medium
    Flexocor Light

    All excellent Arco strings.

    You're going to have to try them to know what works for you.
